IN NUMBERS: MARITZBURG UNITED'S 2019/ 20 SEASON
16 September 2020
The 2019/20 season was amongst the longest ever Premier Soccer League (PSL) campaigns, lasting all of 13-months.
That was because of the four-month break due to the coronavirus. Overall, the campaign proved to be a successful one for Maritzburg United - apart from reaching the Telkom Knockout final, we also managed our second best ever points haul in the Absa Premiership.
Here are some of the key numbers:
2: The goal difference for the Team of Choice in the 2019/ 20 campaign was +2. That's a big improvement on the previous season when we ended on -10.
4: The 2019/ 20 season marked the fourth time in the club's history that we have managed to finish in the top half of the table to qualify for the top eight competition.
5: Our longest winning run last season - five games won in league and cup during September, October and November.
7: United finished seventh this season. We also finished seventh in 2017, and fourth in 2018, our best league ending to date.
8: Maritzburg lost eight of 30 Absa Prem matches last term, a marked improvement on the previous campaign when we lost 15.
